Amber Hickey, faculty fellow in American studies, conducted an interview with the photographer Mikael Owunna for the magazine Aperture. Hickey and her co-interviewer Anney Traymany “spoke to Owunna about the gravity of this series, and how it might be mobilized as a speculative tool of creative resistance. Although most of this conversation was conducted prior to the murder of George Floyd, the video that circulated of Floyd’s death, repeatedly reposted, adds new weight to the question that drives Owunna’s photography: what is that space we can imagine beyond the limits of white supremacy, racism, and violence?”
